I can't get much info on the African guy at all, including his height. He may be 5'7 though, which is no good against the 6'1, fast and athletic Andrade. The guy is undefeated and seems to have big power, so he may be a live dog, but he's fought nobody outside of Africa, taking the fight on very short notice, and is basically a total enigma. I don't like his chances unless he's some sort of Ricardo Mayorga dark-horse.

So the sketchy African website I read that said Kautondokwa was 5'7 was wrong, according to the weigh in today, the African is 6'2, maybe even 6'3 - he's taller than Andrade, who's usually the taller fighter if all of his fights. This combined with Kautondokwa's power makes this an intriguing fight to me now. Kautondokwa has a legit puncher's chance if he's anywhere close to a world class fighter (still remains to be seen).

Andrade is exactly the type of guy who would basically beat himself against some completely unknown fighter, if you're the betting type, this could be a fun one to drop for 7/1 odds

Andrade losing to a (more or less) random African fighter would be kinda depressing for me. He's been one of the top prospects all the way back since he was beating Danny Jacobs in the amateur and became a two time national Golden Gloves champion. Despite all of the political poo poo which he's self-inflicted or has happened to him if he can't get this strap when literally everything has gone his way before the fight would be a huge disappointment-to me, someone who really wants this sport to take off in America-to see perhaps the best of that generation of American amateurs of the last decade fail so spectacularly.

Conversely, imagine how great it would be to see some unknown Namibian guy who was probably fighting on hardwood for peanuts like 2 years ago get a fluke chance at a world level fight and then, despite coming in as a late replacement opponent, excel in his first chance at greatness. Seriously, Walter Kautondokwa said in an interview that he thinks god himself set this fight up so he could succeed. He thinks this chance is so good its divine will and it's a late notice fight on another guy's home turf that everybody thinks he'll lose. Kautondokwa can, more or less, secure himself a legacy with one punch here and if you don't think that'd be amazing I'm sure why you're into boxing.

With this guy and Indongo I think there must be a Namibian Frank Warren out there that's tight with the WBO

Can't question Tevin Farmer though. The time seems right for the Gervonta Davis fight.

Andrede looks like rear end. Dominate 4? rounds, lazily cruise control the rest cool good look

I'm only watching in the hopes andrede gets ko'd but I guess that's probably true of everyone watching

So Kautondokwa is obviously not world class, but Andrade was boring as hell in their fight, which isn't going to help him any. At least he has the WBO strap now, but he's basically cemented himself now as an Erislandy Lara-style high risk/little reward type of fight for anyone. Don't see him getting a fight with either Canelo or GGG anytime soon.

He’s with DAZN and has the only middleweight belt Canelo doesn’t have, I think there’s a good chance he gets Canelo eventually, provides he holds onto the belt.

In the mean time I imagine Saunders is going to try challenging him.

Maybe at some point, but I envision Canelo’s 2019 involving fights with David Lemieux and then a third GGG fight.

If Andrade fights Saunders and the winner of Jacobs-Derevyanchenko in the mean time that would sufficiently build the fight between Canelo and whoever ends up with the belt at the end of all that
